Which is it? Government or Wall Street

Back to the previous post, that event organizer said something that reiterates the problem with Occupy Wall Street. He referred to this dubious ‘public anger with the government and corporate America.’ The OWS folks, or at least some of them, insist the government is funded and driven by Wall Street, ergo, Wall Street is the core problem. Therefore that’s the place that needs “occupying”. Obviously I don’t agree with that last part or else I would not be writing this blog. While I believe that our senators and representatives in Congress no longer represent Main Street (aka “We the People”), they are not necessarily a product of Wall Street. Unless of course, you consider most of them have insider investment strategies — oops Obama put an end to that. Darn!

There may be a ‘dotted line’ between Congress and Wall Street, that much I am willing to admit. Many senators and representatives are from wealthy and well-connected families to begin with. But there are relatively few CEOs that quit their jobs to become a senators or representative. So the Occupy Wall Street movement will continue to be an item of interest to me. Perhaps maybe they can even grow up and get a real goal. Something a little less lofty than dismantling capitalism and something less violent than breaking windows in banks and Mayor’s homes (yes they threw rocks through the home of Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn on Tuesday).
